In this class we will develop different writing prompts, experiments and procedures to help incarcerated writers and artists create new works around the themes of Art and Place. We’ll meet once a week as a workshop to discuss pedagogy and prompts; the second class meeting will be held at a local prison with incarcerated writers and artists. Goals of the class: learning about incarcerated artists and writers; leading workshops; producing a lot of new art and writing of your own; developing a final collaborative project with the class loosely around the idea of Art and Place. We will be learning about writing in response to art, art in response to writing, Ouilipo and Dada experiments, found texts, collage, erasures, imitations, and experiments. Mostly, we’ll all work very hard together to produce something exciting and new. Series poems, prose poems, or different styles of writing and art – all encouraged and accepted here. Students who sign up for this class are required to attend a day-long training on January 8th and also to lead at least one prison workshop with a writing/art theme of your own creation.
